Abstract

This paper presents a systematic analysis of the factors influencing the nature of the "constrained choices" being made by management and employee representatives in concluding agreements establishing EWCs. Four influences - a "statutory model effect"; a "learning effect"; a "country effect"; and a "sector effect" - are found to be at work.
